Rex Allen, Jr. Today's Generation. CD - The Omni Recording Corporation 113). Bringing new meaning to the term "cosmic cowboy," none other than the son of horse opera star Rex Allen recorded Today's Generation, one of the records with the most expanded consciousness in all of '60s mainstream country (granted, that's not saying too much). Rex Allen, Jr. had performed in folk groups during the early '60s, then formed a band called Saturday's Children, after the Hoyt Axton song. Axton was a major influence on Allen's rumbling baritone vocals and dark songwriting, much of which appears on Today's Generation
Certainly there is nothing else in the Country Music canon quite like Rex Allen Jr's "Today's Generation". Promoted upon its release in 1970 as " Underground Country", it is an album both ornate and very listenable. But no amount of adornment with electric sitars, melotrons and harpsichords can disguise the fact that this is also a howl of pure, neglected, post-adolescent angs. Obsessed with mortality, guilt, conformity, the Vietnam war and drug experimentation, Rex was clearly at a "troubled" juncture in his life.
